. what obama processed versus what he delivered. >> american crossroads is responsible for the content of this advertising. >> steve, can we get you to do your reports like that. jim, what's crossroads going for here? >> well, sorts of fits in with the quotes we were talking about. they want to indict the president for failing to live up to his promises, particularly on the economy. and this was always the plan for the romney campaign. they thought they would be able to prevail in this election by pointing out the flaws they see in president obama. the problem is as you mentioned a couple minutes ago that indictment hasn't been crystal clear to a lot of voters. and also, at some point, voters want to know what does the future look like? how will it be different under president romney. and i think continuing through the end of the election, he has to be able to make the case, yes, you want change, and i think a lot of people do want change. they clearly want change. but he's not closed the case in saying i'm preferable to president obama. i don't even know he's come close to closing th

, there are a lot of americans that really sick months ago did not want to vote for barack obama. a lot of swing voters did not want to vote. the president was upside down with independent voters. democrats got absolutely skewered in the off-year election in 2010, minus 16 with independent voters. republicans, though, mark halperin, over this long, ugly primary season and this disappointing stumbling presidential election for republicans, they just haven't given voters a reason. >> an important thing i think for republicans looking for a comeback is that if you go back a year and say what was the obama general election plan, they have executed it exactly as they envisioned. and they continue to. and they're not done executing. if you look at governor romney and what his plan was, thinking about a general election even back then, they have not executed. they have not made this a referendum on the incumbent, and they are not executing day in and day out. they are jumping around to different things. i asked the president's advisers, any chance you guys are going to add some new element, change your

caller released a video, posted on the website featuring then-senator barack obama speaking to a group of african-american religious leaders. this was during the campaign of 2007. some outlets billing it as a bombshell including the drudge report labelling it "obama's other race speech." the president was critical among other things of the government's response to hurricane katrina. >> when hurricane andrew struck in florida, people said, look at this devastation. we don't expect you to come up with your own money. here. here's the money to rebuild. we're not going to wait for you to scratch it together. because you're part of the american family. what's happening down in new orleans? where's your dollar? where's your stafford act money? it makes no sense. it tells me the bullet hasn't been taken out. it tells me that somehow the people down in new orleans, they don't care about as much. >> so at the same time yesterday, there was another video posted on the huffington post showing congressman paul ryan speaking in november of 2011 about ten months ago about a moral tipping point in th

tires threatened a thousand american jobs... it was president obama who stood up to china and protected it wamerican workers.a who stood mitt romney attacked obama's decision... saidtanding up to china was "bad for the nation and our workers." hon ry othea.. when he's taking their side? >>> 44 past the hour. here witusw,or ic chairwoman sheila bair. she is out with a new book, "bull by the horns: fighting to save main street from wall street and wall street from itself." giving her perspective on the financial crisis that began back in 20. and you'll remember that bair is kndghe full risk of eo have subprime loans and all that happened after that acknowledgment. i've got a choice for you, joe. >> yes. >> she says that tim geithner seemed to view his job as protecting citigroup from her whene should have be worri about protecting the taxpayers c ge. >> that's a good one. >> or citigroup ceo vikram pandit wouldn't know how to underwrite a loan if his life depended on it. >> this is the great thing about a three-hour show. >> yeah? >> we don't have to make choices. let's start with timei

look at the polls -- >> let me restate that. americans do care. is it going to move people from obama to romney? >> unlikely for two reasons. one is that the president is still seen as stronger on foreign policy. there's been some up and down, but in the latest polls he's still seen as pretty strong, and also people care more about the economy. i think governor romney has an obligation to talk about foreign policy, though. and the linkage is what i still think is their strongest case. why do you think the next four years would be any different than the last four years? primarily they've got to make that argument on the economy. i think making it on the arab spring and ton the middle east s not a bad political line. >> we'll get to the polls in just a second. i'll try this on you, john, do you think hearing paul ryan talk about president obama's foreign policy is going to move people from obama to romney? >> i'm not -- i don't think paul ryan matters very much, certainly on a foreign policy story. >> do you think it worked? >> i think there's a sequence of things that's going to happen

today's economy. too many of those who are working are living paycheck to paycheck. more americans are living in poverty than when president obama took office. and 15 million more are on food stamps. my plan will create 12 million new jobs over the next four years. we shouldn't measure compassion by how many people are on welfare. we should measure compassion by how many people are able to get off welfare and get a good paying job. i'm mitt romney, and i approved this message. >> i think that ad just makes my point, they're tone deaf. good morning, it's thursday, september 27th, as you take a look at a wet times square in new york city. i'm in chicago this morning, but with us in new york city with willie geist, our national affairs editor for "new york" magazine and msnbc political analyst, john heilemann. also former treasury official and "morning joe" economic analyst steve ratner and nbc news chief affairs correspondent and host of "andrea mitchell reports." >> we have affairs. >> andrea mitchell. and in washington, for "the politico playbook," executive executor jim vandehei.

that explained obama and discredited romney. there is nobody on the republican side with the same capacity to be believable. i think clinton probably right now, you know the numbers. i think he may be the most acceptable american political figure. he is a big force in his own right. >> mika, by the way, i think most people even democrats will say that bill clinton explained barack obama better than barack obama. i mean, barack obama's speech w was -- i thought he delivered it very well but bill clinton was a country lawyer and he -- >> it could explain. >> he went item by item and blew up romney's arguments and built up barack obama's arguments. >> bill clinton heads to new hampshire next week to campaign for the president because he is that useful. what do you think, mr. speaker of mr. mitt romney's chances as things stand right now? how do you feel about it? >> i think he has to have a very strong debate. i think they're whistling past the grave yard. >> is that another way of saying he is not doing so well right now? >> sure. i think everybody i talk to agrees he's had two and a half ve
